No, I'm an engineering technologist. I tried cleaning up the wazoo (lol, so to speak) and it didn't help. If it was dust I'd be having the same problem at work that I'm having here. I kept it pretty clean and would clean it again whenever I had an issue. Eventually it would become completely unusable. As I mentioned, it's been working fine for the last few weeks at work. I believe it must be the 5600 DPI version considering it's about three months old now. The first one would have been getting close to about 10 months I guess.

As I mentioned, I really love the design. The double battery is great and really prevents any down time or cable requirement. This is the only wireless mouse I've had that has ever had a problem like this and I'm really at a loss as to how to solve it.

Yeah that's strange it might have to do something with the wireless connection (interference maybe?) then, because all Twin-Eye sensors can actually behave like this when having dust on the lens but if you've been keeping them clean it shouldn't be the case.

question for discussion, what would people like to see changed on the rat design?

for me, I would like more movement in the thumb rest adjustability, the pinky wing to be flat and not have the little kick out towards the back, and also for the pinky rest to be adjustable like the thumb, as well as moar buttons, but i'm waiting for the MMO to be released for that one.

Do RATs support click to click and free spin wheel function, like the logitechs do?

That's patented by Logitech so you're only going to see it on their mice.

@Mergatroid - I've honestly forgotten if I've asked you this before but have you run the software at this link to scan and see which channel other wireless networks in range of you are using?

i used a logitech with the free spin wheel, the older versions were best, where at a certain speed it would change from click to free spin, the newer ones are mechanical ( its either free, or click ) i thought i would hate the rat wheel, but after using it for a bit, I can't go back to the logitech wheel.

@Mergatroid - I've honestly forgotten if I've asked you this before but have you run the software at this link to scan and see which channel other wireless networks in range of you are using?

OK, we have multiple networks running on channel 1 (three or four popping in and out and one steady), two networks running on channel 2, and two networks running on channel 6. My network is set to channel 11 and currently there is only one computer using it. At times my router will be handling a computer, a laptop, an Android tablet, an iPod, an Android phone and a Sony WiFI camera. We have tested it with everything turned off but the mouse still acted up. That's why I was thinking it was a neighbors network, or a service providers network causing the problem.

I have been using it at work for a over a week now, and so far it has been OK. A couple of dust issues that went away with a quick clean. We have three networks at work (I used a phone to scan them) but I don't know what frequencies they are on. I would suppose since neither of the other two businesses have any IT people that they are using the most common default frequencies of channel 1 or channel 6. I have an access point on my bench computer at work, but there's nothing running on it atm.

Note as well that the mouse can have extended long periods of time when it worked flawlessly. For the first six months owning a RAT 9 I had no issues at all. When it was replaced, the new mouse worked for two weeks to a month before it started acting the same way. So, it could eventually act up at work as well but just not yet.

I just signed up to let you know I've been having the exact same problem and it's driving me mad! I swapped a perfectly good Logitech G700 for the R.A.T. 9, suckered in by the glowing reviews and that sniper button, but the interference makes it nearly unusable. It's as if the mouse and receiver aren't able to properly negotiate a channel. I tried changing my router to an unused channel, which seemed to help for a few days but then the problem returned. How do I know it's the same issue? Because I can easily replicate the issue by simply downloading something! Not exactly ideal when trying to play online games.

I searched Google hoping there'd be a firmware or driver fix but it seems we're the only people affected. Maybe if we write to Saitek we can get them to tell us what channel it uses, but as you've already mentioned, that won't help with the neighbour's wifi.

I think I'm going to go back to the G700 and write this thing off as a bad investment. Pity, I was initially going to get the R.A.T. 7, too...
